You will also have a life-long love of your own personal practice which will continue to develop and support you throughout life.

Your journey starts here…

Teaching Yoga is a very rewarding experience. You may have always dreamed of being a Yoga teacher or wanted to fully understand the benefits of practice so you can pass that knowledge on to others. Not all students of Yoga will choose teaching as a path, some will just want to deepen their experience and focus on their own personal growth.

This Yoga Instructor course is grounded in Hatha Yoga and is strongly influenced by the ancient teachings of Gheranda Samhita, Hatha Yoga Pradipika, Shiva Samhita, and the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. The Yoga practice we teach is also informed and influenced by Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya, the father of “modern Yoga”, a yoga teacher, ayurvedic healer, and scholar and one of the most influential Yoga teachers of the 20th century. This means our course focuses on personal practice, living a lifestyle informed by your practice, designing an individual practice for others, and the practicalities of teaching Yoga techniques and philosophies to benefit others.
